Car Shipping Chinautla

Chinautla is the ninth largest city in Guatemala and is densely populated, making it one of the densely populated cities in the country. There are plenty of employment opportunities for the locals and the expatriates that move from US and other countries.

Living in Chinautla is comfortable but the public transport isn’t as reliable or safe so it is best to have your own personal vehicle.

As Guatemala does not manufacture cars and vehicles, most of them are imported from US or other countries making it expensive to buy a new car here. That is why it is extremely affordable to import your own vehicle that you have been using in US for traveling in Chinautla. It is important to hire the services of an experienced shipping company like A1 Auto Transport service because shipping your vehicle internationally isn’t a viable solution if you try doing it on your own.

While we can assist you to get the best prices and ensure safety of your vehicle during transit. Clearing Guatemala Customs can be a time-consuming task if you are not well-versed with the import-export law of the country.  You need to know that the import duty is 10% with an additional 12% VAT on the import, which is calculated on the basis of the insurance, shipping charges and the cost of the vehicle. However, when you entrust us with your vehicle shipment, we look after all aspects of it.

Valid documentations.

You need to notify the respective Customs department in US and Guatemala before the vehicle leaves the dock and when it reaches the destination port. Additionally, there is plenty of paperwork that needs to be completed. You will need to submit:

  • Bill of Lading.
  • Driving License.
  • Bill of vehicle purchase.
  • Listed details of the vehicle- VIN, chassis number, engine capacity, make, model.
  • Insurance on the vehicle that is valid in Guatemala.
  • Vehicle Inspection report.
  • Registration documents.
  • Power of attorney (optional)

If you need doorstep pickup and delivery, A1 Auto Transport service offers that. It is extremely convenient, but it will add to your shipping cost. You can call us and we’ll do as per your custom requirement. Though shipping insurance is added to the free quote that we’ll offer but if you are shipping an expensive vehicle, it helps to have additional marine insurance.

About shipping the vehicle.

Although there are three ways of shipping your car to Chinautla, air transportation can be disregarded as it is too expensive. The other two methods include Roll-on, Roll-Off and Container shipping. If you have a tight budget and are only shipping your vehicle, then RORO works well. But of you have personal goods to move as you might be moving on a long term basis, then container shipping works better. Here your vehicle and other goods are packed within a large container and sealed. The shipping agent will help you with the details about the shipping methods.

Customs regulations for auto import.

There are specific requirements and eligibility for importing your vehicle here. You can only import one vehicle that is less than 10 years old while any truck that you are importing cannot be over the age of 13 years. In case, any documents is missing there is a penalty of $150 approximately that has to be paid. If you need more information on the import and eligibility, it is best to contact the Embassy of Guatemala.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
